Big Power Pack
for Putzmeister
Recently Putzmeister Concrete
Pumps GmbH supplied an unusual
PUMI. The truck mixer concrete
pump was constructed for Kjell
Magne Gronli in Norway on a
1+3 Volvo chassis.
For the Putzmeister engineers and
fitters this was not an unusual order on
first glance. On a closer look at the specifi-
cation they were impressed: The engine of
this model delivers 750 HP (551 kW).
Kjell Magne Gronli ordered the FH 16
750, the strongest possible engine, with
a cubic capacity of 16 litres and massive
torque; a 28 m placing boom and a 9 m³
mixer drum delivering 3,350 Nm.
Why buy such a power pack? The cus-
tomer was won over by its new Intermix
truck mixer on a Volvo chassis. The local
conditions around Haugesund also played a
role. At such power, the unit easily tackles
every task.
Kjell Magne Gronli said “The reason
I decided to purchase this Volvo chassis
was my Intermix truck mixer. It has a triple
axis, 3.3 m wheel¬base, 660 HP, the au-
tomatic Volvo I-shift transmission, rear air
suspension, a drum with a volume of 9 m³
and telescopic chute.”
“For me it was obvious to purchase an-
other Volvo vehicle when I received a new
contract from NorBetong AS in Haugesund.”
“When it came to the decision of the
actual work machine, the concrete pump,
there was no doubt: It had to be Putzmeister.”
“Reliable, good to drive, superb solu-
tions for daily work. High range, 5.5” feed
pipe, large hopper with powerful agitator
and excellent pump power. But it was mainly
quality that was key.”
“Now I look forward to my work at the
coolest workstation in all of Norway.”
